Home as a Site of State-Corporate Violence: Grenfell Tower and its after-math - Professor Steve Tombs, Open University,

Northumbria University

-

Grenfell Tower has come to represent many things to many people since the tragic fire on 14th June. Prior to that date, the Tower was a home to hundreds of residents – if not, according to some of them, a particularly pleasant one. The aim of this presentation is two-fold: first, to understand the reach of states and corporations into what is often represented as a private sphere, namely the home; and, second, to better understand the mass killing at Grenfell Tower, and the ripples of harms subsequently engendered, as phenomena produced by state-corporate policy and practices.

Professor Steve Tombs (Open University) has a long-standing interest in corporate and state crime and regulation. He works with the Hazards movement in the UK and is a Trustee and Board Member of Inquest.

Dr Alex Hall (Lecturer in Criminology, Northumbria University) will introduce Professor Tombs, and Associate Professor Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria Universi-ty) will provide the afterword.

This event is free to attend and booking is not required.
